You watch him go from a proud independent man to that of a clueless child. The only criticism I have for this film is that there is something about this film that leaves you detached from the story. You never feel apart of the story. You only feel like a mere spectator. Still, it is worth your time.

(mx) wrote: ***1/2outof****Ken Russell's hallucinatory visually absorbing mind fuck of a film that is perfect to watch in THAT frame of mind (ketamine,LSD) as it tries to tell the true story of the night that Mary Shelley got the idea for writing Frankenstein, while her, her lover, half-sister, doctor and friend (as well as fuck buddy?), do a bunch of drugs and trip out all night in a huge mansion. I think the movie took a lot of liberties in what was the truth, so I'd say watch this for more of a Ken Russsell indulgence, then for a slice of true history. The main appeal is the awesomely trippy visuals and audio. It's one of those movies that you can watch countless times and still pick up on a new detail and such. Another amazing aspect is the soundtrack provided my Thomas Dolby. Interesting, original and groovy. I want it. The acting was alright, if not a little over the top, but then with the subject matter, it would be very hard not to go overboard. I especially liked Gabriel Byron as the slimy, asshole like Lord Byron. Ken Russell's direction is nothing but genius, as he provides us with some memorable visuals, such as aborted infants, Johann Heinrich Fuessli's "Nightmare." painting brought to life, breasts with eyes for nipples, a weird bi-sexual undercurrent, bugs, lightning, shadows, body parts, weird creatures, etc. So much to take in, just like a cool acid trip. The movie has a super fast pace and kinetic editing as well. I hold Ken right up there with masterful directors as Lynch, Argento, and Cronenberg, as he has a distinct, unique style that I can never get enough of. A true cinematic artist at work here folks!An awesome movie to watch on or around Halloween as well. A 80ies gem.

Well, Ed Wood comes to mind, but for all those in need of a film with a little more groove to it, Black Belt Jones is one of the most quintessential blaxploitation flicks of the 70's and is one of the most thoroughly entertaining pictures of its time. From a filmic perspective however, this is a terrible flick. The writing and directing is so incredibly 3rd rate it would make jack black cringe. Nevertheless, the dialogue and scenario's are so incredibly hoaxy and clich that they border on absurd and nothing quite rivals the hilarity of that which is absurd. The characters, acting and overall premise is so unbelievably unconvincing that at no point does this film even make an effort to comment on the societal issues which most blaxploitation films at least attempted to address. Black Belt Jones is essentially a self parody of all that was clich and overdone in 70's Hollywood cinema and thrived in the woeful confidence of its inanity. The action scenes, which were essentially the foundation of the film, were poorly executed to say the least, but were able to stay wildly entertaining throughout the duration of the film because of the abundance of non-sequitors which were relentlessly inserted in almost every scene. If anything, seeing Scatman Corothers doing karate in a bright red cardigan is perhaps the funniest thing one might ever see. This film is truly the patriarch for all the foolish spoof films that have come afterwards, but has a charm that can't be replicated in modern cinema. Black Belt Jones is a true B movie classic that championed the spoofy and light-hearted side of blaxploitation cinema which helped to diversify and define the genre. While it neglected to contextualize the racial problems in the 1970's, Black Belt Jones embodied the funky and upbeat sentiments of black power that made blaxploitation cinema a special period in film history and is one of the funniest films of its era.

Powerful and shockingly revealing treatment of teen sexuality, repression, and especially mental illness. It even exposes the American Dream with its underside of false hopes, crushing expectations, and the weird demands overly ambiguous parents put on their children bc of societal norms.If you are willing to follow everything despite the Technicolor flourishes and the sometimes overwrought emotions, this is a surprisingly satisfying story.There is a thoughtful, naturalistic element to the acting here, and it speaks volumes to the craft of acting, and it rings true.5 out of 5
